How many times do I have to try to tell you
That I'm sorry for the things I've done? (ooohhh)
But when I start to try to tell you
That's when you have to tell me
"Hey...this kind of trouble's only just begun." (yeaah)

I tell myself too many times
"Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut?"
That's why it hurts so bad to hear the words
That keep on falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Falling from your mouth
Tell me

Why...
Why...

I may be mad, I may be blind, I may be viciously unkind
But I can still read what you're thinking (ooohhh)
And I've heard it said too many times
That you'd be better off, besides
Why can't you see this boat is sinking
(This boat is sinking this boat is sinking)
(This boat is sinking this boat is sinking)

Let's go down to the water's edge
And we can cast away those doubts
Some things are better left unsaid
But they still turn me inside out
Turning inside out
Turning inside out

Tell me, why...
Tell me, Why...

This is the book I've never read
These are the words I've never said
This is the path I'll never tread
These are the dreams I'll dream instead
This is the joy that's seldom spread
These are the tears, the tears we shed
This is the fear, this is the dread
These are the contents of my head

And these are the years that we have spent
And this is what they represent
This is how I feel
Do you know how I feel?
'Cause if you think you know
I don't think you know what I feel

I don't think you know what I fear
You don't know what I fear
